There's WHAT In My Tea?

Monday, March 31, 2014

This morning I read a reference to pesticides in commercial teas, which are largely unwashed before being bagged. So I googled "brand name tea and pesticides" and found numerous articles. This one, and its suggestions, was a real eye-opener.

    Global Brands and carrington tea were not on the list. I drink those. I tossed bigelow it had not been opened. Wow this is just awful emoticon . You think you are doing something good for you and it ends on the opposite side. It is ashamed what they are doing to our food. I am boiling.

    This makes me so sad! I've been working so hard to switch from the admittedly toxic Diet Coke to tea and find out it may not be much better! Now what?

    emoticon Oh, and ya know, the closer we look, the worse it gets.

Years ago (before whats-his-name invented the internet) I did lots of research into our foods, cosmetics, skin care products, etc. Ewww, it was pretty nasty then . . . if ya want to see something really disgusting, check out the FDA's tolerance levels for our consumables.....
